Western Kentucky sophomore Danay Fothergill is planning to transfer from the Lady Topper program.
Fothergill’s father, Mark Fathergill, confirmed to the Daily News on Wednesday that the 5-foot-7-inch guard from Somerset has asked for her release, although it hasn’t been completed yet by WKU.
Mark Fothergill declined to comment on the reason for his daughter’s transfer before it’s official, except to say she’s “looking for a good fit.”
WKU declined comment Wednesday on Fothergill, saying it “has no update on the situation at this time” in a statement.
Fothergill is averaging 3.6 points and 2.3 rebounds in 14.1 minutes per game for the Lady Toppers (10-2) this season. She’s played in every game and made one start, shooting 31.1 percent from the field and 22.2 percent from 3-point range.
Fothergill averaged 5.4 points per game as a freshman at WKU and 22.3 points per game as a senior at Southwestern High School.
Her absence would leave the Lady Toppers with 10 players on the roster, including nine active. Freshman guard Kendall Noble is out with a season-ending knee injury.
WKU hosts Sun Belt Conference foe North Texas at 4 p.m. Saturday at E.A. Diddle Arena.
